The National War Memorial for Scotland was established by Royal Charter to commemorate the sacrifice of Scots in the Great War, Second World War and subsequent conflicts. The Memorial within Edinburgh Castle houses and displays the Rolls of Honour of Scots servicemen and women from all the Armed Services, the Dominions, Merchant Navy, Women's Services, Nursing Services and civilian casualties of all wars from 1914 to date.
Visit to the Memorial by The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh - 3 July 2014
The Trustees and staff of the Memorial were honoured last summer by a visit from The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, who attended The Annual Service of Commemoration on 3 July 2014. Photographs and a video of this very special occasion are available for viewing in the Gallery section of the website.
Publication of "Scotland's Shrine"
Summer 2014 also saw the publication of Professor Duncan Macmillan's book "Scotland's Shrine - The Scottish National War Memorial". The book records the history of the Memorial from concept, to completion in 1927. The book can be bought through all good retailers, Historic Scotland shops and direct from the publisher Lund Humphries.
